Each week throws off several new video game lists ranging from the humorous to the trivial. What's better? A list of those. Here's a roundup of the rundowns out there.
•Top 10 Video Game Weapons [AskMen] Haven't we been over this already? Yeah, yeah. BFG-9000, blah blah spread fire from Contra. Where's the dead-cat silencer from Postal? What about the plasma cannon in Dark Forces?
•Top Seven Games That Should Get the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Treatment [The Kartel] Sonic the Hedgehog is the obvious and undisputed No. 1 for a side-scroller reboot. Super Star Wars is a brilliant choice at No. 3. My sentimental favorite? Bubble Bobble. Not a sidescroller, but still fun as hell and worth the reboot.
•The Five Greatest Football Games [Top o' the Pigskin] Ah, here's a list to get my blood pumping. Top 5 games? San Diego 41, Miami 38, on Jan. 2, 1982. Or State's 30-27 triumph at Virginia on the day after Thanksgiving, 1994, dumping those overrated bastard-ass bastards from the Fiesta Bowl to the Weedwhacker. I actually taunted Tiki Barber, about that five years later, to his face. Wait? Greatest Football Video Games? Well, uh ... NFL 2K5, Tecmo Super Bowl, NCAA 2004 - NCAA '04 isn't on this list? What?
•The 10 Ugliest Main Characters in Video Games [Video Games Zone] Our German friends tackle the subject of homeliest protagonists, and as much as I loved Bully, Jimmy Hopkins was a butt-fugly lead. Guy looked like one of those fetal pigs you carve in the biology class minigame. But ugliest? This guy hasn't seen what I can do with Fallout 3's character creation engine.
•Top 11 Most Overly Hyped Games [Baxy-Z] Baxy-Z boldly goes where 4,921 sites have gone before, loudly proclaiming which titles have been the recipients of the most insufferable marketing campaigns in the past. Here would be an amusing list: Predicting the five to get it most in the future. Modern Warfare 3. Grand Theft Auto V. Wii Motion Fit Plus Resort II. Discuss.
